Dutch start-up Solar Application Lab (SAL) has developed a solar-powered bicycle in collaboration with the Eindhoven University of Technology, Segula from Eindhoven and E-Bike Nederland from Cuijk. The prototype, nicknamed ‘Sally One’, will be presented next week at the university after which it will be thoroughly tested to see if it holds up in different weather conditions and against vandalism.

“The Dutch Solar Cycle is our flagship application, an electrical bicycle with endless battery power. By applying custom built solar discs to the universal component of a bicycle, the wheels, we enhance the personal freedom of all cyclists. Founder Marc Peters explains that they have developed a technique that is 20 times more effective than current solar cells, making it possible to generate enough energy using smaller surfaces like on bikes.”

  2. This post has mentioned the solar powered bicycle which has developed by Dutch start-up Solar Application Lab in collaboration with the Eindhoven University of Technology. The founder of this electrical bicycle Marc Peters says that it is 20 times more effective than current solar cells & I think which makes it possible to generate enough energy. Its a great revolution in the field of bicycle indeed. In the future we will be benefited much more.
